Hi Lavji,

Is this on Linux or some variety of Unix? Are you using the web-
based GLI to rebuild now and have used the command line to rebuild in
the past? If you have, the gsdl/collect/your_collection/index/*
directory is probably owned by your user on the machine rather than
the web server user (usually www-data on Linux).
If this is the case then the easiest scenario is to move the index
directory out of the way by typing this at the bash prompt while in
your *collection* directory:

mv index index.old

That'll move the index directory out of the way and let the GLI
replace it. To make sure this works in the future you probably want
to make sure the web server has write access to the gsdl/collect/
your_collection/* directory by running the following command in your
*collection* directory:

chmod a+rw .

If you're doing this on some variety of Windows, start by rebooting
the machine. If that doesn't work, try navigating to the gsdl/collect/
your_collection/* directory and renaming the gsdl/collect/
your_collection/index/* directory to something else.
I hope this helps!

*your_collection always designates the short name of your Greenstone
